Otis College of Art and Design Hosts Fashion Show in Beverly Hills

The school's annual benefit showcased student work mentored by Bob Mackie, Mary Jo Bruno, Christopher Wicks, Claire Pettibone and Cynthia Vincent, among others.

GENERATION NEXT: Otis College of Art and Design’s 31st annual scholarship benefit and fashion show, held at the Beverly Hilton on Saturday, showcased student work mentored by Bob Mackie, Mary Jo Bruno, Christopher Wicks, Claire Pettibone and Cynthia Vincent among others, and also marked the launch of an initiative promoting more sustainable practices in fashion. The Otis Sustainability Alliance and inaugural partners Eddie Bauer, Disney, Nike, Patagonia, Quiksilver and Todd Oldham aims to educate the public and promote greener clothing production practices.

“Fashion needs to take a new view on where its products are coming from and how they’re made. The new generation of designers is starting to ask questions,” said Otis’ founding fashion chair, Rosemary Brantley. The benefit, which raised over $1 million for student scholarships, also featured design projects with Halston, Billabong, Venus Williams’ tennis line EleVen, Urban Outfitters and Betsy Heimann for Western Costume. The inaugural Style Icon Award went to Perrin Paris creative director Sally Perrin, and guests included Bob McKnight, Bob Hurley, Elaine Goldsmith and Cameron Silver.
